DCS 2.X Deferred Shading Crash in VR on Exit

This has been around for a while, so wanted to spread the word. If you use DCS in VR and have deferred shading turned on then it’s likely that at the end of a mission your game will crash. Apparently the problem is related to the fancy VR menu you get shown (of the Su-27 in the Hangar).

The temporary workaround is to rename the script that makes up that menu, i.e. rename this file:

DCS World 2 OpenAlpha/Scripts/demoScenes/SceneVR.lua

…to something like old-SceneVR.lua

This removes the VR menu and then removes the crash (at least more often anyway).

PS Thanks @Troll for the original pointer to this.


I just deleted it.
DCS updater will also reinstall the file at every update.

If you edit it you can put in different models and lighting. My plan is to put in the Christen Eagle II into people’s configs just to see what would happen. :imp:


yeah i got a hog in there but the lighting on it is really ■■■■■■. might go with no vr scene for speed.
